From Talisker, you can take a stroll along Ladies Walk to Cavell Gardens, then follow the river up to the peaceful Ness Islands with their little bridges.
After crossing the water, you may like to visit Whin Park, Inverness Botanic Gardens, Caledonian Canal (boat trips, walks, cycle paths), Torvean Golf Course, Inverness Leisure (swimming pool) or the local ice rink.
In the evening you can walk past the floodlit castle and head for a drink or a meal in some of the city's many restaurants and pubs.
Talisker overlooks Eden Court Theatre & cinema on the opposite bank of the River Ness. Eden Court hosts events such as plays, opera, concerts, festivals and films throughout the year.
